There was a case filed against the Kogi State government that the money, which was meant for the payment of Kogi workers, was alleged to have been domiciled in an interest-yielding account with the bank by officials of the state government.
But on Friday, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) requested that the case instituted against the Kogi State government be withdrawn. And, Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke granted the order of withdrawal on Friday sequel to a motion filed and argued by EFCC counsel, Kemi Pinheiro, SAN, leading Rotimi Oyedepo.
EFCC counsel, Pinheiro said one of the six grounds upon which the judge granted the prayer, was that questions resulting in the commencement of the suit had been clarified, and an intention had been shown to return the sum of N19,333,333,333.36 to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Fani-Kayode while reacting to the news, through his Twitter page shame all those that condemned Yahaya Bello and the Kogi State government and told them to come out now.
